Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tuscaloosa District Curriculum
Beginning in Kindergarten, ways to understand text is instilled in the students, as the children in the primary grades are exposed to works of literature. Continuing through grade 12, the students continue reading and being exposed to fiction and non-fiction works. The Language Arts curriculum contributes to a school-wide vision of literacy and communication which employs critical thinking. When a student is a critical, literate thinker in all subject areas and is able to understand and analyze informational texts, the success rate of learning increases tremendously.
With these core subjects in place, students have a base of strategies with which to approach other subjects. Learning is designed so that students are able to concentrate on a subject and master it over their school years. The curriculum lays out the orderly progression of skills and knowledge they are expected to learn.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.
